Reformation Day

Happy Reformation Day. Today we celebrate Luther’s nailing the 95 theses which kick started the reformation. Perhaps Luther picked All Hallow’s Eve (500 years ago) because it was a day where people would go to church, see his points, and kick start a conversation. Over time his followers distilled the their differences with the Catholic Church with 5 concise statements which still rings true today.

1. Sola scriptura: “Scripture alone”
2. Sola fide: “faith alone”
3. Sola gratia: “grace alone”
4. Solo Christo: “Christ alone”
5. Soli Deo gloria: “to the glory of God alone”
